Please Critique My Proposed New Routine
I'll give you my current routine, proposed new routine and rationale for change. Feedback is appreciated!
CURRENT ROUTINE: Monday: handstand pushups and front lever progressions. Wednesday: pistol squats and deadlifts. Friday: negative one-armed pushups and pullups.
PROPOSED NEW ROUTINE: rotate through (A) and (B) three days a week. (A) negative one-armed pushups, front lever progressions and pistol squats. (B) dumbbell swings. Basically, I'd be alternating strength and endurance.
RATIONALE: six strength-skills amount to too many competing goals. I'm cutting them in half. Handstand pushups I can do. But they're not my favorite movement and are tough on the shoulders. I can always come back to them. Pullups are the likely cause of my medial epicondylitis. Besides, the front lever progressions, though technically a static hold, is nonetheless a very strenuous pulling movement. At the same time they don't appear to aggravate my elbows quite like pullups do. Deadlifts are beating up my low back and hips. I can always test them periodically by subbing them in for the swings. And besides, between the pistols, levers and swings I'll be hitting the posterior chain pretty hard.
Most particularly, I want to emphasize the one-armed pushups, which are yet to be officially accomplished, and also the pistols, which are accomplished, but could stand some refinement. The A-B format will enable me to practice both movements a tad more frequently, once every 4-5 days instead of once a week.
Additionally, the new format whets my appetite for the total body workout and is also consistent with my typical advice to do a push, a pull and a lower-body movement.
